CC..I have had dogs all of my life. All raised from puppies and all a wonderful experience. All of them were trained to sleep in a crate.

from how to get help... Include the version and architecture (32-bit, 64-bit) of Linux Mint. List any relevant hardware or software specifications.

Re: Linux mint 19 wifi not wrking

found this on google''''. You may have to turn this on via the keyboard using the Function keys. Hold down the function key Fn and press the F1 (some models use the F5) key, that turns the WiFi card on. Let us know if this will work for you. Hope this helps, good luck.

You may see if it helps....r

The owner had been fishing on a large lake the day before and had marked his route on his gps for the next day. He launched the next day in heav...

Re: Installed 19.2, now I get a black screen

Wrath1998...

Since this is a new install, for me to make it easy, I would just reinstall Linux

I know very little about Linux, although I have used it for a long time, so I take the easy way out.

And it is much faster....r

Re: Dogs...wonderful

Logical thinking Cosmo. Much like my own thoughts when I lost my last Dobie, Annie.

No matter the breed, all dogs are of the same heart. they give all and expect nothing in return.

The Min Pin will breath new life into you trying to keep up with her play. cheers..rumous

Re: Autoharp?

Hi Wally...I got interested in Autoharps after seeing Maybelle Carter playing one. I was in a folk band at the time. After buying one I thought with so many strings, it could be a lead instrument.

Re: Ride-on mower battery...

Tenfoot.... All41 is correct in his response. A load tester is needed to check the condition of a battery.

Abad battery may produce 12 volts when checked with a volt meter but doesn't have the amps to do the job.

Get a new battery.....r
